Northallerton is a pretty market town in Hambleton, North Yorkshire. There is plenty of history and nature to explore in this part of northern England, but much of it is quite spread out. Many therefore choose to get around at their own speed by picking up car hire in Northallerton when they arrive.
The town has been inhabited since Roman times and grew in importance in the 11th century when the Bishop of Durham received the land from King William II. It was then that Northallerton became a big religious centre, leaving many pretty churches to be discovered. These are all easily reached by cheap car hire in Northallerton.
The town is also known for the Battle of Standard, which saw the loss of 12,000 Englishmen and Scots in 1138. There is therefore much history to be sourced from these lands, in the form of museums, libraries and old battle fields.
Northallerton was first established by the Royal Charter as a market town in 1200 and a bustling market is still alive in the town today. Here you can find locally grown fruit and vegetables, farmyard cheeses and a good smattering of bric-a-brac.
